Do I have nipple Necrosis??
« on: July 14, 2017, 08:53:22 PM »
I had unilateral gyno surgery about 5 weeks ago (gland removal and very little Lopo). 1 week after my surgery I had my post op appointment with my surgeon and everything looked great. 2 weeks post op my nipple looked like it was beginning to scar. I called my surgeon to see if scarring of the nipple was normal and he said it will be fine and give it time to heal. It has now been about 5 weeks post op and it does not appear to have healed at all. So now I am nervous and hoping I do not have necrosis. Please look at the attached pictures and give me your thoughts.

The darker color looks purple. This is skin glue and ususally starts to come off 2-3 weeks after surgery. It doesn't look like necrosis based on the photos. Check in with your surgeon.
